We’ve mused a few times on Twitter that it’d be great to have an app that brings together the best of Australian political journalism in one spot.
I dubbed this fictitious iThing the No Crap App in recognition of Julia Gillard’s exhortation that it can’t be that hard for journalists to “just not write crap”.
Of course such an application will never become reality; the journalists in question are scattered across media organisations and some are hidden behind paywalls.
Nevertheless, this blog attempts to provide you with the closest thing: a place where the best of Australian political journalism is gathered in one spot.
And in recognition of the fact that quality political writing and analysis is not limited to mainstream media organisations, I include the best posts from the blogosphere as well.
Needless to say, excellence is a subjective concept, but I’ll do my best to be objective.
